FAQ's

Why are we not at Vetta this year?

Unfortunately Vetta Sports closed their O’Fallon location this year.

What is the flooring like/what shoes do we wear?

It is the turf that is like grass. Please wear cleats, but if you do not have cleats then tennis shoes are OK

How do I sign up with a friend?

After parents have registered their kids for the program, email mac@eliteft.com with the grade and names of both the athletes.

Do we get to choose our practice days and times?

When you sign up to register, you are able to request your 1st and 2nd choice of training days. Usually first choice requests are filled however if a day is full by the time you sign up then we will assign you to your 2nd choice request. Scheduling is done on a first come first serve basis. As for time, the youngest kids practice first and then we progress through the night by age. This is the same for games.

How long are practices and games?

All practices are 50 minutes long. All games, regardless of the age group, will be a total of 40 minutes long. This will be divided into 20 minute halves with a short break in between. 

Can we enter our team?

Please call us to discuss this. Our goals are to have appropriate competition and to keep players safe. If the team being entered is a recreational team, they may be able to sign up for the program. If you are competitive then we will not allow it as we will protect the integrity of our league and players.
